Beyonce to follow in footsteps of Oprah ‘by creating own TV network’
The pop icon reportedly wants the network to focus on educational aspects
Pop icon Beyonce has plans to follow talk show queen Oprah by creating her own television network, British newspaper The Sun reported on Friday.
The "Single Ladies" star allegedly wants to launch the new network within the decade and bring her closest creative friends’ ideas to life.
“She intends to create her own TV network just like Oprah,” an insider told the newspaper.
“Her entertainment company Parkwood is doing very well and her desire is to create a network so she can have the freedom to bring the ideas of her closest creative friends to life.”
“The plan is to develop it within the next decade.”
Beyonce, who is married to rap icon Jay-Z, reportedly wants a big chunk of the network to focus on educational aspects, such as including documentaries on African and American history.
